Recorded on July 22, 1929 in New York City. This recording was composed by Fats Waller and Andy Razaf for an all-Black revue titled "Hot Chocolates." The band includes Louis Armstrong on trumpet and vocals, Homer Hobson on trumpet, Fred Robinson on trombone, Bert Curry and Crawford Wethington on alto saxes, Jimmy Strong on tenor sax, Gene Anderson on piano, Mancy Cara on banjo, Peter Briggs on tuba and Zutty Singleton on drums. This Orchestra may have single-handedly been responsible for making swing style jazz one of the most popular musical genres during the 30s and 40s.

This song is terrific as it is, but these guys made it simply fantastic. Everything is fine here - instruments, vocal, arrangement. Satchmo's delivery is just awesome! So far it is my favorite version of the song.

This music is great and just what I want for a project I am doing. Am I able to use it in my sisters wedding video? I don't know if copyright will stop me.
Please let me know.
